Blog Series - Curves around the World - Curvy Plus size Outfits - WEEK #23 GIRLS NIGHT OUT

Happy Wednesday girls!
Firstly, I apologise for no post last week. I won't bore you with the details, life got in the way but I'm back to brace yourselves for this weeks installment of 'Curves Around the World'. 
Girls night casual outfit plus size & curvy outfit of the day/night featuring floral kimono
For this week's post, I decided to show an outfit I wore on my last 'girls night' out so you may have seen it briefly, but I didn't go into detail as I knew I was going to do another post. It's a casual outfit.

A few weeks ago, I went to a clothing launch. I was travelling into London and didn't know anyone there, so I wanted to wear something comfortable and practical. I would have worn a dress but  it was windy that day and as I was travelling down, changing trains etc, a dress was at risk of blowing up and I didn't want any embarrassing moments so opted for jeans.
Outfit for the evening featuring jeans and Primark floral kimono with statement necklace
Outfit details
Basic Vest top (New Look)
Kimono (Primark)
Jeans (New Look)
Shoes- (Converse)  ....yes I wore Converse as my ankle is awaiting surgery
Bag (Matalan)
Statement necklace (Matalan)
Earrings-gold hoops (Matalan)

Onto the rest- face/ hair/nails. 
I used my Urban Decay Naked Palette and went for a bronze/grey look and on my lips I used Cargo Lipgloss in Bourbon Street which I patted down a little into my lips. It matched the flowers in the kimono print really well. For the rest I used my Natural Collection Bronzing Pearls for some colour with a tiny bit of 17 Damson Wine blush, put a little brown eyebrow pencil through my brows, Collection concealer for pesky blemishes and Rimmel Wake me up concealer under my eyes and under my brow bone for some highlight. I also used MUA eyeshadow in the inner corners of my eyes (I love doing this to brighten my eyes and face). Foundation wise I used my usual MaxFactor Face Finity powder foundation and for mascara I used MaxFactor False Lash Fusion with Rimmel waterproof liner on my lower waterline and brown smudged out on my top lash line. For hair I went pretty natural but I did straighten the ends a little and for nails I went nude and used Rimmel varnish in 'Soul Sessions'.

This outfit is comfortable, easy but pretty and is great for a casual girls night. The kimono and make up are the main focus. I love the kimono trend. The floral print and silky material is girly and luxurious looking and as it's loose, it's so comfortable and easy to throw on. The rest of the outfit is simple so the kimono does the talking and takes centre stage. Oh and let's not forget, any pretty cover up is fab for those (like me), who want to cover upper arms etc.  Do you like kimonos, what do you think of this outfit? Leave me a comment and let me know.

  1. Glad to see you back and fab as always! The kimono is awesome and a great casual girls night out. Your makeup is always on point, I really like how you highlight your eye with the light color in the inside. It really does brighten your eyes up. Do you have any tips to open your eyes? Because my eyes always look so small, so just wondering. hehe :)


  2. I've got a couple of kimono-sleeve tops I really like, I'm a sucker for flowy sleeves and silky fabric; so yes, big fan. I really like the pattern and colors on the top as well, it's a great piece.

    As to the wind making a skirt rather less than ideal, been there, flashed folks, not a great moment (especially when you're trapped waiting for a train you're going to share with the folks you've just flashed). Much smarter to opt for the jeans ;)

  3. This is my kinda look - comfy and practical - you looked very nice and that Kimono is fabulous. Love your makeup, its beautiful :)

  4. Very cute Kimono! This is definitely your signature look!
    Looks like you had a great time! I should check out the it online?


Thanks for commenting. It makes my day! :)
